We have a toaster oven at the space, though I've not used it (I have one at
home that follows the heat profile for my solderpaste)

Sparkfun's tutorial: http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/59

Demo videos:

http://www.youtube.com/user/hpux735#p/u/3/N_195d7bP9M -- real time, less
pretty, showing just how sloppy you can be and get away with it.

I could probably do a SMD badge kit session with paste and the oven, but
it's actually harder than hand-soldering that kit (which it was designed
